Outside Merit Badge Opportunities!

Numerous groups sponsor merit badge opportunities where scouts to work on and often complete unique merit badges. It is the scouts’ responsibility to “be prepared” by reading the merit badge booklet (check it out from the troop library or purchase a copy at a scout shop) or at a minimum, work through the workbook.   Scouts sign up and arrange their own transportation.  Unless otherwise noted by the sponsor group, scouts are expected to be in full uniform. It is often more fun to bring a buddy from the troop but is not required.

Scoutmaster Bucky holds large in person and on-line session almost every month.  The in person session are usually held at a church or school at various locations around the metro area. About twice a year, he hosts sessions at business, a college or university or even a museum in order to work on the highly unusual merit badges. These sessions are very popular so check often and sign up early.
